We are proud on the FRÜH gastronomy, which is rich in tradition!
The famous „Brauhaus Früh“ is located in the next-door building, inviting residents and guests from all over the world to enjoy the typical Cologne hospitality.
The traditional waiter "Köbes" cares for your bodily comforts and serves "Kölsch" and typical regional dishes on smoothly scrubbed wooden tables. You won’t stay alone for a long time, according to the Cologne motto „Dringste eine met?“, which means as much as „Have a drink with me“. Enjoy a draft „FRÜH Kölsch“ beer and be surprised what the waiter serves to you after ordering a „halven Hahn“ in our traditional "Brauhaus".
Typically "Kölsch" since 1904
Shortly after the turn of century in 1904, Peter Josef Früh established his new brewhouse called "Cölner Hofbräu P. Josef Früh" in the building of the former Central Theatre. This very day the heart of the FRÜH-gastronomy still beats at this place. In the cosy rooms of the brewhouse the traditional waiter “Köbes” cares for your bodily comforts and serves local “Kölsch” beer and typical regional dishes on smoothly scrubbed wooden tables. The seats in the beergarden are a popular place to be, as soon as the weather is nice.
One part of the Früh history has been hidden for a long time: our "Brauhaus Cellar". The medieval vaults in the former fermentation and storage cellar have been exposed and restored after the relocation of the brewery in 1998. Since that time draft "Kölsch" beer is served at the cellar bar. Look over the chef's shoulder while preparing your meal in our open kitchen.
